“Water is the driving force of all nature.”
Leonardo da Vinci
Changing your colour-mind from red to blue is a therapeutically balanced state.
The sound of the sea and spending time by water enhances perception, calms the neurons and improves mood. There are a number of factors in play here, such as light reflection and soothing sounds.
There is a connection between depression and detachment from nature and the environment. Using the five senses to imagine blue light revitalising the body and mind is magical, give it a seascape fragrance. Having a local body of water to visit, whether this be a fountain, a pond, a river or an ocean, brings enormous health benefits.
Researchers at Exeter University discovered that spending time near water benefits health better than being in a green environment such as a field, park or woods.
The length of time we spend near water is often more considerable than time spent in parks.
Swimming reduces risk of diabetes, cancer and heart disease.
Watch a video of the ocean to calm yourself, or simply imagine the seascape for yourself. Picturing yourself surfing, getting back on the board again and again and finally experiencing the exhileration of one prolonged surf, can help build resilience.
